Enabling Effective Risk Management in Financial Services
Executive SummaryThe risk management process is about the interactions and relationships of cause and effect across various transactions and information across the financial series organization. As a result, this fails when risk issues are addressed as a system of parts, rather than a collective whole. A complete situational and holistic awareness of risk is required across all operations, processes, relationships, systems, transactions, and data in order to see the bigger picture of risk and its cascading impact on the financial services organization’s performance and strategy. Chase Cooper, with their aCCelerate GRC suite, is a GRC solution provider that GRC 20/20 has researched, evaluated, and reviewed with financial services organizations that are using it in complex, distributed, and dynamic business environments. The aCCelerate GRC suite delivers a solution that is highly adaptable and configurable to a range of risk management challenges in financial services firms.
